Another day, another player on a plane from Seattle to Jacksonville.

The latest player to join Gus Bradley in the AFC South is Chris Clemons, who reportedly signed a four-deal with the Jags. This seems to be an ongoing trend.

Perhaps the Seattle Seahawks should contact the Jacksonville Jaguars before releasing their next player. There might be a late-round draft pick to be gained.

Granted, the Seahawks might be done cutting players. Then again, maybe not.

Truthfully, the Jaguars probably wouldn’t give anything up when it seemed likely that the ‘Hawks would release these individuals anyway. Besides, the Seahawks aren’t going to wait around and hope they can make these types of deals.

Are the Jaguars suddenly going to the take the NFL by storm now that the roster has been enhanced with former Seahawks? Hardly. Jacksonville went a dismal 4-12 last season and they are lacking a lot of pieces.

Why these signings? The Jaguars are trying to improve quickly and there is no better place to get players in the NFL.

Clemons can still play, and if the league has no salary cap, perhaps he is still a member of the Seahawks. But, this is business and Clemons was too expensive to retain. The Jaguars felt like they needed to do something, so they apparently grabbed players that were familiar to Bradley.

It will be interesting to see if any other former Seahawks will be joining the Jags. Perhaps Sidney Rice will eventually make his way to Jacksonville.

In the meantime, the Seahawks will reload and chase another championship. The Jaguars? They may be better, but they may still be a long way from contention…even with a number of former Seahawks on the roster.
